4.0 out of 5 stars caught in their trap!, 17 May 2008
This review is from: Wait For Me (Audio CD)
Admittedly upon first listen of this CD I was certain the Pigeons were just another standard indie band, yet after just a few listens of this I found myself totally loving this striking debut.
This CD flows flawlessly, each song a remarkable prologue to the next, it's so easy to listen to and is guaranteed to have you singing and dancing wherever you are!
Sure the boys aren't about to win any brit awards but this cd does exactly what any indie/pop cd should do, it's fun, memorable and completely captivating!
You will not regret buying this, especially at this price! Best tracks include 'Take her back,' 'You know I love you' and the massive opener 'Romantic type.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Boys Like Girls - On Top Of The World?, 22 May 2007
Disregarding the painfully lousy band name, this CD is emphatically one of my favourites of 2007, and it's only just April, although only twelve tracks, they all sustain strong, perfect composition and have made BLG vastly become one of my favourite bands, in just a few months, leaving me yearning for more tracks.

Barely out of their teens, these boys are majorly underrated in the UK and have already toured Europe, and are continually on the road, these lads are set to be huge along with tour buddies `Hellogoodbye' and label mates `The View'

This album screams of teen angst, adolescent love stories and generally being youthfully free this is the ideal soundtrack to any summer, tracks such as `Heels over head' and `Dance hall drug' are so flawlessly catchy you'll have them on repeat for hours, even the less infectious `Up against the wall' and `On top of the world' are growers, and still emerging on my most played directory.

`Holiday,' `Broken Man' and `Thunder' set the perfect balance between the immaculate pop punk hooks and the sweet melodic refined `slow songs.'

Although Boys like girls in reality are nothing new they are almost definitely one of the greatest at what they do right now, BLG are wonderful for fans of Cartel, Cute Is What We Aim For, and all harmless pop punk boy bands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long live FOB!, 22 May 2007
This review is from: Infinity On High (Audio CD)
From the 2003 debut flawless full length that was 'Take this your grave' to the 2005 letdown 'From under the cork tree' by 2006 I was confident Fall Out Boy were a lost cause to the sell-out scene, yet this CD, even on first listen has rehabilitated my faith in this band.

From the critic-rebelling opener 'Thriller' to the closing 'I've Got All This Ringing in my Ears and One on my Finger' the album flows perfectly, mastered and polished, over produced and poppy but exactly what I'd expect, and like to hear in a pop punk record, the singalongs are awesome and the chorus' are captivatingly catchy, A true example of how FOB have come from the boys early ep's and playing friends garages and driving round in broken down vans to having Jay Z on speed dial and chart topping singles.

Although for me, it's doubtful FOB record will ever transcend 'TTTYG' this album does push the barrier, Pete's writing ability is verified further more in tracks such as 'I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)' and 'Golden' which also flexes Stumps harmonious vocals beautifully.

The sticking poppy tunes such as 'Don't you know who i think i am?' and the statement release 'This ain't a scene...' are striking anthems and catchy in all the right places, but even the darker songs like the emotively incredible '(After) Life of the Party' and heavier 'Fame < Infamy' display the foundations of FOB and are definite growers.

This album is unquestionably confirmation of why and how Fall Out Boy are selling chart topping records, and selling out London's biggest music venues, if it's impressively inspiring and melodic pop rock anthems you're after, buy this record, if Island records keep ejecting records like this out, Fall Out Boy are most likely going to travel to infinity, and beyond.
